Welcome to a new year in Middles. We all hope that you have had a great Summer! This year the Middles teaching team is Mrs Russell, Mrs Morris and our new member of the team Mrs Taylor – we hope she enjoys being with us!
All the children have settled well and we are looking forward to working with them. Our School Topic this term is Healthy, Wealthy and Wise. We are focusing on this in Middles as Reuse, Reduce and Recycle and our Science topic is Light which we think fits in nicely!
As always it is a delight to see all the children grow and develop as they progress through the year especially the Year 3s in their first year with us. We plan to have lots of fun as well as put in lots of hard work!
We hope everyone has had a great Christmas and New Year and is now feeling ready for the beginning of term. It must have been particularly special for Mrs Russell to spend the holiday with her daughter Emelia. It was certainly very exciting for us to meet her new baby in the week before Christmas.
This is a special term for the children in The Middles. Our topic What a Wonderful World will take us all the way to the Land of Egypt! Sadly we won’t be able to go to there for a visit, but will be arranging to ‘bring’ Ancient Egypt to Bar Hill for the day! More details will follow later. Meanwhile you may be interested in: finding out about Ancient Egyptian costumes using History Off the Page’s website: http://www.historyoffthepeg.co.uk/egyptian_costumes.htm and encouraging your child to undertake independent research using sites like http://primaryhomeworkhelp.co.uk/Egypt.html and http://www.ancientegypt.co.uk/ .
Our timetables are attached so you can see what we intend to teach when and you can ensure your child is properly equipped for PE and Art.
We always look forward to this topic and we are sure it will be memorable for the children.
